Horner Wins Mid-Am By One; Bryson Wins Masters in Playoff; White Sinks First Ace

Dan Horner, the 2008 Utah State Amateur champion, was dripping oil coming home, but thanks to an eagle on Alpine Country Club’s par five sixth hole and a birdie to the start the back nine he claimed the UGA Mid-Amateur championship with one stroke to spare with combined rounds of 71-72-75-218.
 
Josh White, playing behind the leading threesome, was the only player in the field to break par the final day thanks largely to his first ever hole-in-one. It came on the seventh hole with a perfect 8-iron. He also birdied the final two holes to finish with his second straight 71 after opening the tournament with a 77.
 
Darrin Overson, the 1998 Utah State Amateur champion, playing in the final group with Horner, birdied the 17th hole to close Horner’s lead to just one shot. Horner opened the door with another bogey on the 18th, but Overson also bogeyed.
 
Second round leader Greg Wojtkun had a tough final round with no birdies and a triple bogey on the eighth hole and a double bogey on the par three 12th hole and finished in seventh place with a 70-72-81-223.
 
Brent Bryson, a member at Alpine Country Club, won the Masters Division (40 and over) on the fourth hole of a sudden-death playoff with Jeff Jolley.  They each finished at five over par 221 with Bryson posting 76-70-75 and Jolley carding 72-77-72.
